nicklas and his fiancee, 26-year-old shannon honea sexually abused and videotaped children as young as 2 years old. many of the incidents took place in the middle river home where they lived. we've learned the couple both worked as emts with a company called transcare. a spokesperson tells abc2 news they were fired after not reporting to work last week. that's when police arrested the couple. john nicklas's ex-wife who didn't want to be revealed on camera, didn't want to show her face, still lives with the couple, said she didn't know what was happening even though she still lives with him. >> i had no idea it was going on. supposedly they have a lot of evidence but i'm having a hard time believing it's something he would actually do because i've known him for a long time too. >> detectives say some of the abuse on the video appears to have happened at a hotel room in atlanta, georgia, shannon honea's hometown. police say they have at least three young victims but
wouldn't say if there are more out there. if you know anything about this case, if you think you could know more victims they want to hear from you. here's the number to call, 410-853-3650. we have an eastern shore attorney who wanted to be your senator. dealing with an arrest for sexual assault. police in cambridge arrested 53-year-old grayson john alan echol after an officer said he saw the lawyer holding a woman down against her will in the law office this weekend. he ran for the state senate in 2002 but lost. how does a baltimore city paramedic pronounce a man dead, leave him there until someone notices he's alive? police caught a man burglarizing a veeps store. they say he lunged at him so he shot him. brian cubler explains what happens next. >> reporter: after lunging at police with what officers thought was a knife they shot 51-year-old michael quarles once in the head. whether or not they killed him was an entirely different
matter. >> he got in here. he touched the cash register. it was wide open. all change on the floor. >> reporter: chung cho owned this convenience store in northwest baltimore. he says michael quarles broke in through his front door but never got out of the lobby when police shot him. when he made the scene that night he was not told much more. >> i don't know if he alive or dead - >> they wouldn't tell you anything? >> no, they took him to the ambulance but he don't know -- i didn't even see his face. >> reporter: they kindergarten know either. the -- they didn't know either. the fire department said medic company 11 made the scene and declared michael quarles dead. a half-hour later the suspect sighed and gasped showing crime scene detectives he was not dead. paramedics returned to the scene and transported the suspect to the hospital. >> be a an anomaly to some degree. i'm not aware of previous instances. >> reporter: kevin cartwright
says with the fire department, says dead or alive is a basic call. >> there may have been medical protocols violated. we're not certain at this point. >> reporter: that will come after an investigation the department said will consist of interviewing the paramedic and onscene officers if possible. after being shot in the head and laying unattended for at least 30 minutes michael quarles is still listed in critical condition. >> that paramedic has been assigned to administrative duty and could face suspension, demotion or even termination. budget cuts could cause one of the oldest mounted police units in the country to shut down. the baltimore city police department is hoping a private foundation can raise $200,000 before the end of september to keep the mounted patrol unit up and running. if not, hay and feed, they will have to run out for the unit's six horses and force officers to move on to different assignments.
the budget for the horseback unit would cut from over $19 ,000 last fiscal year to just under $47,000. $195,000. the unit has been around for 121 years. commissioner bealefeld says he won't let it shut down. we'll see what happens. police say a bunch of men robbed two people at a light rail station. they say two 17-year-olds and 25-year-old man have been charged with armed robbery. police still looking for five other suspect. the two victims told police a group of eight men stole cell phones around midnight on saturday near the cromwell light rail station. then the suspects boarded the bus. an arraignment scheduled later today for mark floyd, the man police say is responsible for a double stabbing in northeast baltimore. back in june police found the bodies of two decomposing women in a first floor apartment in the 4,000 block of biddison lane. later identified as alicia royster and lydia steed. floyd has been charged with
first degree murder and conspiracy to commit first degree murder. he's behind bars without bail. martin o'malley will describe plans for a major transportation project that is happening in baltimore. the proposed red line. abc2 news cheryl conner has more on this plan from west baltimore. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the red line has been in the planning stages for years and for that long it's also been opposed but take a look behind us because setup is underway in about an hour governor martin o'malley will arrive to maryland will pursue federal transit money for the line. the proposal would have a east-west truck that would run through johns hopkins, to downtown and through woodlawn. the idea is to have the line above ground, some say it's a bad idea. they are worried the project will drag down property values, cause traffic problems and block waterfront access. the maryland transit administration says hundreds of people submitted testimony on the red line project and about
2/3 support it. back live now the governor will be on the 10:14 train here at the west baltimore rail station. it's part of a whistlestop train tour where he's announcing his support for two projects. the purple line and the washington area, and again the red line. so far protesters have not arrived here but we would be surprised based on the past if this announcement gets through without any opposition. we'll be here and bring you much more at 5:00 and of course on abc2news.com. live in west baltimore, cheryl conner, abc2 news. another carbon monoxide leak sends more people to the hospital. >> coming up next, how safe is your home? and how to determine if you have a leak and how to keep your family safe year round. many of us love to travel but when you get older it gets tougher, so we have simple tips as well as a check list to help you enjoy your trip with less worries. >> the fight against drugs and crime will in the spotlight tonight as communities around or area and the country take to the streets. why you should get out of your

of carbon monoxide. a leak at an apartment complex sent 10 people to the hospital yesterday morning. it happened on ship friend road in whitemarsh. bge says the leak came from two hot water heaters with clogged filthers. six adults, four children were treated at area hospitals. the apartment complex is oind by sawyer realty, the same company that owns the complex in essex that has had an ongoing carbon monoxide problem. is it just me or are we reporting more about these carbon monoxide leaks? joining us are two employees from bge. are we seeing more ofities leaks? >> they certainly have been in the news more. >> usually we just hear in the winter. this is summer. >> you're right. you would normally hear about it in the winter, that's when your home is closed up and if there's something generating carbon monoxide is probably is more likely to sicken the folks inside. >> the policy is bge does not come out to fix the problem. >> what bge does is we respond to calls of carbon monoxide if
the fire department requests that we come. and typically if they request we come we will certainly respond but we're not the first responders for carbon monoxide cases. that would be the fire department of the local jurisdiction. >> what do you look for? >> we check appliances for proper operation. we decide, you know, we use an electronic instrument that takes air samples. when we find a problem with a appliance, a c.o. problem we isolate the problem, turn it off and advise customers get a qualified contractor to fix it. >> furnace is number one? >> yes, water heater number two. and your gas range can produce c.o. >> can't smell, can't taste. have no idea it's in. >> odorless, colorless and that is why we recommend that customers have their appliances checked on a regular basis. you want to have them checked by a qualified technician which typically is a plumber or hvac individual to come in, check them out, make sure that
everything's running smoothly but one of the other things that mike might want to mention is typically, in some cases it's not necessarily that the appliance isn't functioning properly but it's the people using those areas to store stuff. >> a lot of times customers take boxes and put it near the furnace or water heater, can knock off a vent line. instead of fumes going up the chimney they are coming into the basement. we advise people don't store anything around your furnace or water heater. things you can do yearly is just, as you're in the basement check to make sure the vent is connected to the chimney. to make sure everything is going outside. >> we fall down a little when we think, hey, the furnace is seven years old, nothing is going to happen, it's relatively new i shouldn't worry about it but - >> we take in our cars every 3,000 miles to change the oil but don't look at furnaces until they break. it's a good policy to get somebody to come in regularly to check, clean it, make sure there's no dust around it, burners that can prevent it from burning properly. >> we've had a big push in
baltimore city for a smoke alarm. let's get the word out about c.o. detectors. >> there certainly are carbon monoxide detectors available. you can get them for as little as under $20. you can pay more for some that are carbon monoxide and gas detectors. but certainly you can get these at any of your home stores. they have a number of varieties, so you would want to talk with one of the people there to find out what is best for you. this is definitely a good thing to have in your home. just like a smoke detector. you want to change the battery regularly. it's not going to help if it's not functioning properly. certainly this is something to consider. >> where do we put them? >> placement. in the hallways, where you sleep, it's going to go off and wake up your family. don't store it close to an appliance because if you get a little bit in there it will set it off. you want it in an area where you can be woken up if you have a carbon monoxide problem. >> if it goes off, i know we call 911 but do we take time to open up the window? what do you do? >> open the windows.
my suggestion is go outside. if you have c.o. fresh air is the best thing for it. wait for the fire department to come, they will check it. if they need our assistance we'll come also. >> another one? >> there a combination of carbon monoxide and gas alarm. it's more expensive than the other type but it can alert you to other gases that might be in the home. >> let's stop the reporting on these c.o. leaks. let's get it under control. thank you for coming in. bge. megan? in news "2 your health," you've heard it before, fish oil is apparently good for your heart. researchers at the university of maryland medical center say they have the evidence to prove it. abc2 news health reporter kelly swoope shows us that proof. >> wonderful. lungs clear. heart sounds pretty good. >> reporter: for laquisha berry that is good news. she's lived with congestive heart failure for years. she's done everything she can to keep her heart healthy.
for example, she's longed prescribed to the benefits of fish oil. >> i try to keep it a part of my regimen. >> consuming omega 3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil is extremely beneficial. >> reporter: now dr. mandy mira, chief of cardiologist at the university of maryland medical center says they have the research to prove that. newly published data showing mounting evidence of heart health benefits of fish oil. >> we showed in this study that fish oils are highly beneficial for cardiovascular diseases, in particular they stabilize rhythms so they are anti-rim mick. they stabilize the blood vessels. fish oils have great benefits even in preventing heart attacks as well as sudden cardiac death. >> reporter: while supplements are good the best sources of omega 3 fatty acids are from fish, that is tuna and salmon, too. >> other types of seafood like shrimp, grouper, catfish,
swordfish don't really have a lot of fish oil that is beneficial. >> how do you know you're taking the right supplement? >> i don't know. i'll be honest with you. >> reporter: with so many options the doctor says many people are uninformed. you should typically take one gram a day. oral suspension is best but if you take capsules, cut them open, if it smells rancid your fish oil is bad. kelly swoope "2 your health." >> the research is going to go on. research at the university of maryland center, they were awarded $1.5 million for a grant that will study more benefits of fish oil. you two fish over there, back to you. >> we should be on the bay now pulling up another white marlin. >> beyond the bay. >> a couple of miles. dan deere, if you didn't hear, from st. michaels, pulled up a 67-pounder. not a bad first day.

humidity socking them in with fog and spray. once they get out in the open waters they should be in much better shape. the fog should burn off quickly. we just had hazy sun around town, parkville 78 degrees. we'll pump in more humidity today so we're going to actually see our skies go quite hazy and maybe even some of the high clouds rolling out of these ohio thunderstorms. the storms themselves will run their course back in the mountains of west virginia, likely fall apart before they reach us but what we'll actually deal with is the chance of more storms popping up as we head to the north and west this evening in pennsylvania and could slip ahead of that line as we head through this evening. just a small chance of a shower. if anything we'll dim out the sun with increasing clouds, hot and sticky tomorrow with the cold front sparking more showers and storms in the showers. they have a better chance of reaching us in the afternoon. then crossing over towards the delmarva and eventually reaching the boaters as they try to come back in for the weigh in. today our two-degree guarantee, 91, mostly sunny early and hot.

kennedy krieger. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> you probably hear this from parents sometimes. right now we're in summer, school has not started yet. this is a good time to take advantage of communication. >> it is because, you're more relaxed, it's the summer, you don't have the pressure of school during the year and all the activities in your calendar. it's usually just a more relaxed time. so you can take advantage of, you know, spending time with your children and just enjoying each other. >> so you have that time. where do you go from there? what do do you? are there ways to start start talking to your child? things to look for? >> number one, just talk with your child. make communication, make conversation fun. if it's not something that is enjoyable the child isn't going to want to engage in it. you want to make it pleasurable and a nice exchange of just information. >> as far as a communication disorder or a learning disability it's a broad spectrum. what are we talking about? it can be anything?
>> right. the earlier we can detect it the better. because then you can get services started and address the problem which is really the most important. >> since it is such a big umbrella are there guidelines or tips parents should look for? questions to ask in >> sure, general guidelines. in general, by the time you have a child, by the time they are a year old they should use single words. 2 years old, two-word combinations. 3 years old they should follow complex directions like a two-step command like put this away, throw this in the trash. that kind of thing. by the time they are 5 most of the speech should be understandable and they should be saying most of their sounds correctly. >> you go from there and say this is not exactly where i think my child should be. what do do you? besides not panic? >> you want to, number one, ask people you trust. you can talk to your pediatrician, your local elementary school, you also have contact the american speech language hearing

communication. how is the child saying their sounds correctly? how well are they understand? how well are they formulating language? how well are they able to communicate fluently and in conversations? we'll look at that. then we can again compare them to other chin their ages and allay fears of, no, everything is looking good or yes, there are things that are a little concerning but it's ok. we've identified them and let's get services started to address those problems as soon as possible. >> you mentioned asha. what is the web site? >> www.asha.org. >> if you have any questions about that, if you didn't get that web site or you want to see this interview again we'll put it on abc2news.com. go to the gmm page. thank you for coming in. let's get to elder care. you've been invited to attends your granddaughter's wedding, in arizona, you have not flown in 30 years. last night you spent the night somewhere was 28 years ago, you're a little stressed but
dr. alicia abaje from johns hopkins school of medicine packed a travel list. calm us down. >> i'll try. >> what do we need? >> it's really important. as people get older there's more to keep straight. more medical conditions, more medications, more doctors to keep all straight. what i put together is a list of a few things that people should have with them. there's two types of medical information that older adults should have with them. the medical information that is most important is a list of their medical conditions. they should talk to their doctor to help them put this list together. but on that list should be the medical condition, the state that condition is in and what they are doing about it. i'll give you an example. if you have high blood pressure on your list should be high blood pressure, normal blood pressure for me is about 120 over 80 and i'm taking three medicines and following a low-salt diet. >> that detail? >> yes, why is it important? it's important number one for you to know. but if you go to an unfamiliar setting and end up god for bid in a hospital or ee they need
that information to better take care of you. >> where do you write it? >> doesn't matter. some people keep flitd a journal, a notebook, doesn't matter, as long as it's there. in addition to the medical conditions make sure you have your list of medications. not just the list of what they are but the generic names, the dose, the frequency and why you're taking it. those are the two most important things to have in terms of medical information. >> you talk about the medications, if you're on diabetes you put that down, congestive heart failure? >> if you have that, that goes on the list, in addition to that you should say what your heart normally pumps at. your doctor can give you that information, what percentage and what your normal weight is for your congestive heart failure. >> what contact information? >> very important. in addition to your health care professor contact information you want your insurance information with you. you also want the pharmacy you normally get your medicines from. most importantly you want the cablght information for your -- cangt information for your health care agent or person
that makes decisions on your behalf in case you're not able to do so. >> additional items. a bathroom scale? >> these are depending on what conditions you have. for people who have congestive heart failure you should have access to a bathroom scale wherever you go because you need to monitor your weight. that is important for that particular population. >> eyeglasses? >> for everybody, you need do have the i-glasses, a spare with you, have your hearing aid supplies if you wear one and dentures. very important basic things to keep you sane. >> and you say pack a blood pressure - >> a blood pressure cuff. our have has -- or have access to one when you're there. if you have high blood pressure or have problems with your heart. monitoring those problems while you're away might explain why you're not feeling well. >> or you can say, oh, nothing is going to happen. i'll be all right. >> let's hope that's the case but better be prepared. >> thank you very much. your medical students are following you. >> yes. >> megan, she has a cult following now. >> she usually does. >> it's not her mom it's -
